Abstract

Es wird eine Brauseeinrichtung (11) mit einer flexiblen und flächigen gelochten Strahlscheibe (28) geschaffen, bei der mindestens ein Flächenbezirk nach außen gewölbt ist und bei Überschreiten einer bestimmten auf ihn ausgeübten Eindrück-Kraft (E) sprungartig mit der Wölbung nach innen in einen dahinterliegenden Raum umspringt und bei Kraftentlastung wieder von selbst in die Ausgangslage zurückspringt. There is provided a shower device (11) with a flexible and flat perforated spray disc (28), wherein at least one face area is domed to the outside and when exceeding a certain pressure exerted on it crimping force (E) abruptly with the bulge inwardly into a room behind jumps and jumps back in force relief again automatically into the starting position.
Durch das Springen bzw. Umspringen können Kalkablagerungen an der Strahlscheibe abgelöst werden. By jumping or jumping of calcium deposits on the jet disk can be replaced.
